You don’t need lube to have good sex, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Adam & Eve has the best water-based lubes, gel-based lubes, anal lube, and everything in between. Pick some up today and get ready for the best sex of your life.
What is Lube Used for During Sex?
Lube is a personal lubricant used during sex that reduces friction and heightens sensation. It’s great for couples as well as those seeking a heightened solo experience. Lube may serve a singular purpose, but it can be applied in a variety of ways and used for a multitude of reasons. There’s no limit to what you can do with it—the trick is finding the best one for you. Are you an older couple that needs a bit of assistance to get things going, or a single person who just wants to try something different? Maybe you have an adventurous group of friends that needs a little something extra when everyone gets together. In any case, lube will enhance your sexual satisfaction and makes the perfect addition to any erotic experience.
Types of Lube
Like vibrators and dildos, lubes come in a wide variety that either satisfy a specific area or create a unique sensation. The different kind of lubes are:
Water-based lube: Good for people with sensitive skin or vaginal irritation. Pairs well with condoms and sex toys.
Oil-based lube : Provides a slippery sensation that lasts longer than water-based lube. Use this for masturbation or during a sensual massage.
Silicone-based lube : Best for long sessions. It’s also good for having sex in the shower because it doesn’t wash away as easily.
When it comes to anal sex, the silicone-based option is your best bet. Silicone is hypoallergenic, reduces heat and friction efficiently, and has a higher viscosity, which means it’s more slippery. The one drawback: it doesn’t play will with sex toys, most of which are also silicone-based. If you’ve got a favorite vibrator or butt plug made of silicone, use a water-based lubricant instead.
How to Use Lube
Whichever type of lube works best for you, make sure you apply it on your fingertips before using it on the body part or sex toy of your choice so you can control the amount that you use. Speaking of the amount, there’s no real rule regarding how much you need—it’s up to you or your partner to figure that part out. Start with a few drops and see how it works. If you’re satisfied, great; if not, add a little more.
Types of Gels and Lotions for Sex
Go beyond the world of lubricant and see what personal gels and lotions have to offer. The goal is still better sex, but the sensations can be different, so it’s a good opportunity to expand your horizons and see if there are other products that can meet your needs. The differences between gels and lotions are:
Gels: You can use gels to desensitize or sensitize a specific area, depending on the experience you’re craving. Anal sex enthusiasts will find a lot to like here.
Lotions : Perhaps more palatable than lube or gel, lotion is the perfect go-between. It’s perfect for people who don’t have lubrication issues but might want some extra feeling.
